Miguel Barceló’s work has been receiving wide international recognition over the last twenty years, culminating in the Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts in 2003.
This book containing 196 images is the result of a unique relationship between the artist and the photographer Jean-Marie del Moral, whose privileged access to Barceló’s world comes from seventeen years of trust, friendship and collaboration. It takes shape as an artistic rite of passage and accompanies Barceló in his trips throughout Europe and Africa; it encompasses the projects developed during his stays in Mallorca, Barcelona, Mali, Palermo, Lanzarote and Paris, with the unending drive that inspires him to explore everything as is reflected in his art.
Step by step, del Moral illuminates Barceló’s themes, the way in which his art catches the light, colours, textures and the materials of the places and studios he has lived in; the way in which he absorbs distant civilisations and uses them to rediscover his own cultural heritage. This prodigious immersion in his creative process enables us to catch sight of the artist’s imagination, in which the archaic and the modern, the organic and the artificial are juxtaposed and blended and where inspiration can spring from the most eclectic objects, whether they be animal bones, dried plants or plastic toys. Simultaneously intimate and close, the photographs capture that dynamism and spontaneity palpable in all Barcelós’s creations, from painting and ceramics to his architectural projects and the extracts of his diaries and artist’s sketchbooks.
These astounding images not only trace Barceló’s itinerary but also suggest an interpretation of his work as an always-changing, always innovative whole.
Jean Marie del Moral’s photographic work is present in both public and prívate collections all over the world. His images of Barceló were shown for the first time at the international exhibition in Arles, France in 1988. He has published books on the studios of Miró, Picasso and Van Gogh, and is a famous contributor to Vogue, World of Interiors, El País and Madame Figaro, among others.
